    Not sure which of the coolant hoses you are replacing.There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online

    I didn't know they don't have BMW in the non professional version. Of the aftermarket manuals the Bentley manual is the only one to get in CD or paper form. You may find one on Amazon or EBay.
